Oracle under siege on two fronts
Bobby J writes "Bloor Research observes that IBM, Microsoft, SAP and Ingres are all putting effort into eroding the installed base of the Oracle RDBMS. Oracle is under attack from these corporate heavyweights because Oracle seemed weak, having diverted too much resource away from its flagship product into developing the applications division. A second front seems to be opening up for Oracle, with the open source community targeting its bacon as well."
